Taoiseach admits there have been setbacks in Covid vaccine rollout
The Taoiseach has admitted the Government is ‘obviously disappointed’ with some of the issues with the covid vaccine rollout so far.
Ireland is set to receive less than half the deliveries it originally expected in the first three months of the year.
Almost 150,000 have been fully vaccinated in the country to date and there have been ongoing issues with delays and supplies.
Micheál Martin admits there have been setbacks.
“Obviously we’re disappointed with quarter one, in terms of some of the issues.
“But in terms of protecting the most vulnerable, we’ve made very good progress on that.
“The impact of the vaccines is very positive, and we’ve seen that in terms of frontline healthcare workers, hospitals and nursing homes in particular, and now out in the community.”
